It looks like Jan took care of his extra few kilograms. On the other hand, he's looking almost like a linebacker, with all the muscle he's added, and all that muscle mass has got to be dragged over 3,400 kilometers for 3 weeks and up and down some of the biggest climbs in France. I think it's likely he will lose time on the uphill TT on l'Alpe d'Huez despite his TT strength. Still, by all accounts, he was flying in today's TT, and I can see him winning Stage 19's 60-kilometer TT by a healthy margin, and possibly taking the Prologue, to boot.
